Many boring and unteresting Trojans are added only occationaly - say once in the month.

OK, I'll bite -- what the heck is a "boring and uninteresting" Trojan, especially to someone in your position?  ??? ;D  I assume you mean ones that either don't yet seem to be out ITW, or else they're essentially non-disruptive other than, say, displaying prank messages?

Most of Trojans are boring and uninteresting  ;D - we receive hundreths of them from other AV companies every month, they were not seen ItW and they bring no danger to our users...

Do other Av companys such as kaspersky hire extra people to reply to virus samples then pavel?

And could there be a sort of automated respons just to let us know the sample arived at its destination?

Kaspersky simply has more manpower and even Kaspersky sometimes add Malware only if a new Comulative update is released. Not often, but it happens.

BTW: Their respond  is not very informative, just Malware(the name of) or not or if an outbreak took place they make an autorespond with an automatic scan-robot. But thats enough for me, maybe Avast could do that too!?

The respond of CA Etrust is intresting, if sending Malware via their Webpage.
